Mission

JobsOhio is a private nonprofit corporation designed to drive job creation and new capital investment in Ohio through business attraction, retention and expansion efforts.

Notes from the nonprofit

Led by its board of directors, JobsOhio is dedicated to the success of Ohio and the companies who invest in the state. To fulfill its mission of increasing capital investment and driving job growth, JobsOhio holds itself to the highest standards of accountability, transparency, integrity and ethical conduct.

JobsOhio provides assistance to companies of all sizes that are starting, relocating or expanding in Ohio. Those companies then pledge to reach specific measurable metrics in a certain amount of time, which include jobs created and retained, payroll created and retained and fixed asset investments.

Details of each agreement between JobsOhio and a company receiving incentives becomes legally binding and, once executed, are shared publicly on our website. Each year thereafter, companies submit reports indicating their progress toward meeting their commitments. JobsOhio uses these reports to monitor a company's performance and ensure its compliance.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

JobsOhio is focused on driving private sector job creation and capital investment in the state of Ohio. Our goal is to lead the nation in this effort.

JobsOhio's leadership team, with over 200 years of industry experience, leverage business relationships to foster growth in the state. Through the JobsOhio model those relationships are built for long term and consistency.

Driven by a private-funding stream from spiritous liquor sales in the state of Ohio, JobsOhio leverages this funding to support loans and grants to companies with a focus on return on investment.

JobsOhio is led by a board of directors composed of nine proven leaders from some of America's most successful organizations. Their broad experience in management, fiscal responsibility and corporate governance, as well as their diverse perspectives and relevant industry experience, benefit JobsOhio in its mission to drive job creation and capital investment in Ohio.

Since 2011, JobsOhio has commitments for over 166,000 new jobs creating $7.5 billion in new payroll. There is over $47 billion dollars in new capital investment commitments for the same timeframe. Since February 2013, JobsOhio has invested $230 Million in revitalization in sites across the state that has resulted in over $2 billion in leveraged investment.

What's next? JobsOhio continues to focus on working with small, middle market and large enterprises to make sure Ohio is in the consideration set for capital investment and job creation efforts.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
